AArch64 has the same issue ARM had where the LR register was not used in
leaf functions. This was reported in
https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=42017. In AArch64, this
test-case need to be added with more live ranges for the need for the
LR_REGNUM. i.e test-case in the PR needs additional loops up to r31 for
the case AArch64 to see this.

The same fix (from the thread
https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2011-04/msg02191.html) which went
into ARM should apply to AArch64 as well. Regression tested on qemu for
aarch64-none-linux-gnu with no new regressions. Is this OK for trunk?
